From the family archives: Johnny Puleo tries to hit on Mom!

Here's a little something from the family archives I thought I'd share with you all today...


That's my mom in the picture — all 4 feet 11 inches of her — towering over harmonica virtuoso Johnny Puleo... circa 1962, at a classy joint called Le Faisan Bleu here in Montreal.


My Dad can be seen cracking up in the background... He really didn't seem to mind Johnny P. trying to score with Mom... it was the swingin' sixties after all.

Don't Miss "C'mon! Live A Little!" This Week!

"C'mon! Live A Little!" continues to surge through the LuxuriaMusic Spring Pledge Drive, cleaving into the fray like the proverbial warm knife into soft butter. And it's great that host Derrick Bostrom cares so much about this station to take the time out from his busy schedule to make that effort, but why does he have to be so bitchy about it?

"What are you waiting for?" He whines, "We've got bills to pay!"

Happy Birthday to Joseph Pujol-The Fartist

There is a great documentary on You Tube. Just google his name to find it--it plays in five parts.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1857 Joseph Pujol eventually became one of the most unique performers ever to grace a stage. Legend has is that one day, while swimming, Pujol discovered his unique ability. As he took a deep breath before submerging, he felt water enter his rear. He soon discovered that, with abdominal control, he could deliberately suck water in through his anus and project it back out with great force. Further experimentation led him to discover that he could also do the same with air and, by varying pressures, he could produce distinct notes. Pujol became the first flatulence musician. It was a skill that eventually made him the most well-known and highest paid entertainer in all of France.
